May 11-13, 2022 | CERN IdeaSquare, hybrid
***Information on OIS Research Conference 2022 will be updated regularly***
The organizing committee of the OIS Research Conference 2022 at CERN IdeaSquare (hybrid conference) invites you to join the discussion about the role and value of open and collaborative approaches to generating and disseminating scientific research.
We invite you to join the discussion about the role and value of openness and collaboration in scientific research at the upcoming 3rd OIS Research Conference. Works both empirical and conceptual in nature will be presented along one of three tracks:
Track 1: Open and collaborative approaches along the entire scientific research process, including opportunities, challenges, and contingency factors. Possible topics include but are not limited to:
Track 2: Ecosystems and organizational designs facilitating or constraining open and collaborative research approaches. Possible topics include but are not limited to:
Track 3: Micro-foundations of open and collaborative research approaches. Possible topics include but are not limited to:
Researching OIS includes investigating whether, how, and under which conditions applying open and collaborative practices along one or more stages of the scientific research process influences novelty, efficiency, and/or the impact of scientific research, taking a balanced view that recognizes important contingency factors on the individual, organizational, and ecosystem-level.
In addition to the paper presentation sessions, the conference program includes keynotes, an OIS experimentation session, an OIS debate, and opportunities for socializing.
The 2022 OIS Research conference will instead have a hybrid format.
The submission deadline for the 2022 OIS Research Conference has passed. We are now in the process of reviewing submissions. Information on abstract acceptance will be provided by February 16, 2022.
Information on registration will follow later in February.
Please note that participating in the conference requires either getting an abstract accepted for presentation at the OIS Research Conference 2022 or being invited to contribute in an active role as a speaker, discussant, panelist, or session facilitator. Given that this year’s conference will be implemented in a hybrid format, allowing for in-person and virtual contributions and participation, we will additionally enable online participation in selected sessions for a broader audience. More information on this will be shared, together with the conference program, in February.
We look forward to welcoming you at the 3rd OIS Research Conference! Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
The Organizing Team,
Participating in the OIS Research Conference is free of charge. The conference starts on May 11 and ends on May 13. The conference will be an in-person/online hybrid taking place near CERN IdeaSquare, Geneva with online and offline elements to enable physical and virtual contributions and participation. We expect participants to be present throughout the program. A preliminary conference program will be made available upon abstract acceptance in February 2022.
In addition to the paper presentation sessions, the conference this year’s conference program includes keynotes, panel debates, and OIS experimentation sessions. This year, these plenary sessions will link to the special conference theme related to the relationships between artificial intelligence and openness and collaboration in science.
We are closely monitoring the developments related to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. In accordance with the situation in spring and in line with the COVID Traffic Light System at CERN, we will adjust the conference program if needed and keep you posted. For now, we expect to run the conference as planned in a hybrid format. A COVID-19 safety concept will be in place for all participants who join us in-person physically at CERN. More information on this will follow as we approach the conference dates.
Whether you prefer to stay near the conference location, near the airport, or in the downtown area, accommodation for any budget can be found in and around Geneva. We have noted a few options here in order to aid you in your search. Please note the locations of the conference (The Hive) and the conference dinner (Living Room Bar & Kitchen, Geneva city center) on the map. Hotel options are sorted by color based on average price. Additionally:
We will also reserve a limited number of lower-cost single bedrooms at the CERN hostel for some participants of the OIS conference (recommended for PhD students). To make use of this option, please contact us via e-mail (email@example.com).
